Dave Barry Wins Prestigious Journalism Award

Categories: Media Watch
2695.jpgThe calendar year is just about up, and now is the time for media outlets of all sorts to make top 10 lists and give out various other "awards" and whatnot. Today The Huffington Post rounds up "The Year in Media Errors and Corrections 2008" and names a correction by Miami Herald columnist Dave Barry as "Correction of the Year." Here's the clarification that brought Barry this great honor:

In yesterday's column about badminton, I misspelled the name of Guatemalan player Kevin Cordon. I apologize. In my defense, I want to note that in the same column I correctly spelled Prapawadee Jaroenrattanatarak, Poompat Sapkulchananart, and Porntip Buranapraseatsuk. So by the time I got to Kevin Cordon, my fingers were exhausted.

While we're on the subject, in last week's "Loon Over Miami" columnNew Times stated an anonymous ER doctor claimed to have surgically removed a 13-foot dildo from a patient's rectum. We actually meant 13-inch dildo. We apologize for the error.
